As a certified staging professional in Calgary, I get asked for a lot of advice from home sellers. A popular question is, “What’s a quick home staging tip for how I can make my listing stand out in a neighbourhood where many of the houses look very similar?” Here’s one fast and inexpensive thing to do.
Paint your front door a colour that will add a spark of life.
This home in Panorama Hills that we did a staging consultation for comes to mind as a perfect example. When you’re used to seeing mostly doors that are black, brown, white, or beige, there’s no doubt that a more vibrant colour pops and draws the eye in.
That’s critical when making a first impression and for enticing buyers who are viewing the listing photos online.
Even if the potential buyers don’t necessarily love the colour, it’s quite likely that the listing will be remembered and referred to as the “yellow door house” (in this particular case). It’s a way to help your listing remain top of mind after buyers have viewed countless homes.
Paint is an easy fix (for you as a quick home staging solution AND for your buyers if they want to change it after they move in).
It makes sense to stage before you list your home or condo for sale. But staging doesn’t have to be overly complicated or expensive.
